So, you know, I like…totally missed out on pimping yet another episode of The Batcave Podcast. Somehow, it snuck past me during the holidays, and I only just noticed today that it had been out for over a week, by this point. Holy missed opportunities, Batman!
Host John S. Drew, despite my third-rate efforts at promotion, continued with his review of the classic 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and for the second season’s twelfth story (and 23rd and 24th episodes), he’s joined once again by writer/podcaster/audio drama guru Jay Smith, he of such nifty and keen audible offerings as HG World and Hidden Harbor Mysteries. Together, they take a look at the story that brings us one of the more oddball villains to face off against the Dynamic Duo, “Come Back, Shame” and “It’s How You Play the Game.”
From John’s write-up:
“Shame is stealing automobiles only to abandon them sans one part to the vehicle. What is his scheme and what strange ideas do John and Hidden Harbor Mysteries author Jay Smith cook up when they discuss this episode? How about Batman working with the Nazis to find escaped POWs in Gotham? How about the Joseph Campbell-esque journey of a young boy from villain to hero? How about the lack of care and guidance parents had in the 60s?”
See what John and Jay think of these episodes: “Come Back, Shame/It’s How You Play the Game”
